To all FSA members:
The FSA executive is holding a by-election to fill the position of FPSE Non-Regular Employees Representative for the remainder of the 2-year term ending May 31, 2021.
The FPSE Non-Regular Employees Representative works to promote better and more consistent representation of the interests of its members who are involuntarily deprived of job security, salary or benefits normally accorded to regular employees. The FSA opposes the casualization of work in post-secondary institutions and advocates for the full employment and the fair treatment of all employees regardless of their appointment status. Non-regular employees do the same work as regular employees and have the same qualifications. Despite this, they often earn lower salaries, have no employment stability, and are treated as disposable employees by institutions. It is for these important reasons that we need a non-regular employees representative here at UFV.
Please nominate an FSA member of your choice using the nomination form and return it to the FSA office, Abbotsford (Room B346) no later than 4 pm, Wednesday, October 30, 2019. In the interest of transparency, we encourage all nominees to provide a candidate statement along with their nomination form.A list of candidates and their statements can be viewed by visiting the FSA website at http://www.ufv-fsa.ca/about-us/annual-general-meeting/egms-and-by-elections/. If necessary, a three-day online election will follow.
Duties of this position can be found on the FSA website at http://www.ufv-fsa.ca/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/FSA-Executive-position-descriptions-and-duties-2015-2016.pdf.
